Valeria Monis

Whilst researching ceramics and Russian prison tattoos I came across this fantastic collection by an artist called Valeria Monis. She has hand crafted a collection of ‘criminal ceramics’ and they are beautiful, combining russian prison tattoos with traditional Russian blue porcelain, connecting two strands of Russian art history.

Each of the plates are handmade, illustrated by hand with drawings from the Russian prisons. The white of the plates combines beautifully with the blue ink used for the designs, I wouldn’t even want to eat my dinner off these plates!
